Currently only Liquid and Navi.
give ENCE time and there will be a good chance for them to beat Astralis.
Nip didn't beat astralis in bo3 and will not beat with this line up.
Faze/Mibr wins at iem chicago/ecs were not important as they choked later.
Navi will not beat astralis in bo3 because they have no map pool.Astralis easily wins:Nuke,Inferno,Dust2,Cache.
Only liquid can beat them atm but they need to play super well.
FaZe if they can get an ACTUAL GOOD IGL.
NiP gonna have a good tournament, beat them in a BO3 sometime in their life, then go back to losing tier 6 cs
-Liquid honestly has a very good shot at beating Astralis; just give them some time and I think they can do it.
-Renegades might have had a bit of luck in the major, but we'll see how they do in the starladder tournament this week.
-NaVi has to have every single one of their players playing at the best possible level that they can, and honestly they aren't very good with that, but they can beat Astralis for sure, just not consistently.
-MIBR are very "idk" at the moment lol. They did good at the major, but they lost to Windigo at WESG and went 0-5 at Blast SP, so I dont think they have any chance now, but if they get their shit together, they can definetly do it. idk tho, might be the fan in me talking lmao
-As for fnatic, nip, hr, mous, and some other teams; I do think they can do it, it's just a matter of time and how much effort those teams put into learning Astralis' strats and beating hem at it. Just like every other team, Astralis has a breaking point, and one day they'll reach it and another team is going to be number one.
Liquid took a map on last matches, if they improve they can beat them
i think ence and liquid, maybe navi if edward and zeus are not in botmode
Ence will beat them. In bo1 99% chances
Liquid have the talent to do it, but they're not ready yet. They will need to work a lot if they want to get to Astralis' level in terms of strats and teamwork. But individually they're probably not far behind Astralis.
As for mibr, if will depend if cold and fer can get back to their level of 2017, fer had a great major but cold doesn't seem to care much about the game anymore. I could be wrong though. But adding TACO was certainly not the way to get back to the top, he was already the weak link when SK was dominating, and he still is. mibr with KSCERATO would probably be a contender for #1 if the stars get back to their old level, which they probably would with the added motivation after a roster change.
Or FaZe if they get s1mple.
-Liquid with a lot of work
-mibr if they remove TACO
-FaZe if they take s1mple
the first to beat astralis will be a top 30-40 team , for example rogue envy or someone in that tier, bookmark this , 100% guaranteed
Navi - on the day they can beat anyone but then they will attend the next event and look like dogshit.
Liquid - great team but the big names go missing against Astralis
Faze - no chance, they need a new roster asap. Get Niko off IGL role, you have Sunny and Flusha without teams who would improve them.
MIBR - OMEGALUL nice try
Ence - looking better and better but I just think they are benefiting from a weak scene right now. So many teams making braindead roster moves and teams like Ence and Renegades are taking advantage with solid placings.
navi over astralis bo3 at cologne was imo the most convincing ,and i think they can do it ,although i've been thinking it for awhile now
liquid at ibp? lol
Kirsten Elsebeth Hansen, a hot young blonde and Magisks future girlfriend, will beat Astralis.
Magisk will fall in love and spend all his time with her.
She will suck all the energy and his motivation to play CSGO out of him.
That will be the demise of Astralis, and it won't be the first or last time a girl has destroyed a Danish CS team.
Otherwise, Liquid will have to step up and do it for her.
ence if they keep improving their game and players become even better, used to play against T1/big stages.
mibr if they figure it out how to be good again or do some right roster change cuz fer and cold still great just fallen who need to evolve his strats imo.
i dont see faze or navi beatin them. faze players are too washed up, only niko is a top player rn.
navi with deadweight of zeus and edward wont do it too.
liquid wont ever be better than them. their system is too much of a copy of other teams and glaive can read them with easy. its sorta robotic.
KARRIGAN WILL GET HIS REVENGE
Old SK Gaming, VP and fnatic
me and my friends for sure.
The Italian Superteam
Pope John XVIII
Liquid has a BO3 win over them this year. Liquid has a map advantage on Dust2 over them. I think by the end of this year Liquid will singlehandedly dethrone Astralis. If they can improve their map pool slightly and their consistency, they can be the best team in the world.
FaZe with a right IGL...
I loved the team with karrigan and xizt , highly doubt they would work now...
Windigo Diwingo Gowindi Wingodi Digowin Godiwin and Ofcourse My dick
Not sure about consistently, but ence will beat them the next time they meet, which is a long time away, possibly dh Dallas or cologne
forZe and Spirit, +Vega +Runtime.GG
Ya know one thing that might beat Astralis is Astralis dipping in form for a little, it happens to every great, cant be like this forever. Eventually magisk wont hit every headshot, xyp wont win the most 1vxs, and device wont get multikills every other round, gla1ve will chill on the smokes too.
Faze with s1mple, Niko and a decent igl.
Or navi mby if they keep s1mple and get Jame and Angel
Liquid could do it as well.
Maybe even Fnatic without Jw and xizt but with golden and Flusha
Right now, Liquid. In the future: Liquid, Navi, FaZe eventually, struggling to believe in MiBR but yeah
faze, if they get an igl cuz they're the only team to beat astralis a lot of times if im not wrong
MIBR, HOLLY FUCK NO
i think Liquid, ENCE and FaZe
In current forms:
In potential future forms:
FaZe (They need a good IGL, that's all they're missing)
Wherever MSL is going (Hope North would take him back ffs)
Will be interesting to see what ENCE has to offer in the future. If they are just sniffing on the top to soon fall and be forgotten or if they will be a force to be reckoned with. They have definitely given the top teams, even Astralis a really tough battle. If they develop more they could possibly be top 1, I would be really excited to see that happen.
It's French to end astralis era
MIBR. It's just a matter of time honestly.
FaZe when they get an IGL will consistently beat Astralis, and form a new era
Only Astralis could do it realistically
IF -Xizt +flusha (Brollan or flusha igl depending on the map cuz lets be real Xizt's strats are trash)
IF +pronax coach
IF +olof -twist (Faze trash atm bring olof back to fnc)
IF JW consistently AWPs AGAIN :D
Mibr. We will be back. I believe
Liquid in a few weeks
maybe Renegades in a few months without Liazz
ENCE maybe in a few months (even if they lost 2-0)
Nordavind will beat them guys dont worry. Hallzerk top 1 2019
FaZe and Liquid are the only one
If NAVI replaced electronic with Jame, then NAVI could beat Astralis because of Jame's domination against other AWP'ers.
NaVi - Yes
Liquid - No
ENCE - No
M16R - No
FaZe - No
